Subject: Fantastic
Extremely amazing recording, because of quality, and also just because it's from 1824. It is amazing that we can still listening to something that occurred 188 years ago, from where I am at the present time.

This is an exceptional version of the Choral Symphony. This live version (in mono) is astonishingly dynamic. There is audible tape hiss as was common in those days, but this does not seriously detract from the listening. This is a "must download."

Subject: High quality classical music
I'm impressed. I never knew that there are such high quality recordings from the 1950's. High dynamic range and many details. Really nice!
